Craftspeople throughout the land now have the opportunity to create the defining piece of their careers.

But what other options are available? What else can inspire? Or just save a few euro because it costs less and we're broke.

We could go the chic and traditional route with a classically styled Queen Anne ladies' chair, available online online for a reasonable €329 (pictured left), which, according to, "would bring a touch of elegance to any bedroom, hallway or sitting room". No doubt it would do similar for a castle.

For a mere €1,250, the same "elegant" chair is also available online from bespoke Italian designers Ikandi.

There is also the cheap and cheerful flat-pack option with the Bertil range chair from Ikea, which costs a mere €25 (pictured right).
